    New boating restrictions on Portland’s Willamette River reduce complaints, create new problems

    For the past two years, business has been moving in the wrong direction for Dan Lay, who manages the wake boat dealership Active Water Sports in the Portland metro area. “I’m seeing customers wanting to sell their boats,” he said. “No one’s champing at the bit to buy new boats.
